Taylor Swift sends a message

Taylor Swift has kept a very low profile over the last few months. Which is how I’ve started almost every post about Taylor Swift over the last few months. At this point it’s become part of her brand. When we do get news about Taylor, more often than not, it’s strategic, like a new boyfriend and re-releasing her catalogue on streaming services just as Katy Perry drops a new album. After that, she went underground again… only to reemerge last night during the NBA Awards to honour Russell Westbrook.

Russell was named the league’s MVP. Russell is also a big fan of Taylor, proudly singing to her music in the car, and proudly singing along to her music at her show:

That last video has always killed me because he’s THERE. Like he’s not just clowning in his car, but he’s actually physically present at Staples Centre going to town on all the lyrics.

Which is maybe why Taylor decided to reciprocate? Her message to him was included in a video montage that was played in Russell’s honour:

Super corny. But, other than that, I can’t find a way to hate on it? Give me a reason. Put the spirit of outrage culture back in me so that I may rage appropriately in a separate post.

I do wonder who made that request. Like did it come from Oklahoma City Thunder? Or was it Drake who texted his Apple teammate and asked her to do him a favour?
